Keto Herb Crusted Chicken Breasts

19 ratings

For a simple weeknight dinner that you want to pop in the oven and forget about, this dish is perfect! Four chicken breasts are smothered in a creamy topping that’s strongly flavored with fresh basil, parsley, and rosemary. Each bite is very tender and coated in its green topping!

    I wish I could submit a picture. Oh my word that was delicious. What I did slightly different - I used a basil paste instead of fresh, I used a rosemary sage infused salt as well as dry rosemary and fresh chopped parsley ( about 2 tbsp.) . I served on top of fresh spinach. I have chicken breast not cooked / will be making again tomorrow. Oh and I didn’t use a blender / didn’t need to with using the paste.

      This was pretty tasty, however, it cannot be 3 calories. Someone needs to fix this!

        Ho can it this be low? When i put the weight of the chicken alone it is 900 calories already

        This recipe was delicious. Other times I made it, I sliced a small onion and a few cloves of garlic and mixed it with the spinach. I had also put some shredded parmesan on top of the chicken... delish!

          So great! I didn’t have fresh herbs but used dried instead and it was still fab. Thank you!

            I didn’t have spinach for this recipe. But it was amazing without it. I did slice open the chicken breast and put a slab of Monterey jack cheese inside!

              SO GOOD! I added a handful of fresh chopped cherry tomatoes on top right before eating and then a little bit of balsamic glaze on top for 1 carb per tsp and omg it was so delicious! Will be a staple from now on!

                  Great dish for an easy weeknight meal. The Mayo makes it taste very decadent and rich. Good weeknight go to!

                            What is a good sub for mayo? Have a picky eater. Sour cream? Greek yogurt? Excited to try it!

                              Hi there, If you don't mind the taste, greek yogurt would be a good substitute for the mayo. Hope this helps!

                            This is a keeper! The only alteration I made was to leave out the rosemary.....which I dislike. Husband and daughter loved we will make the recipe again soon. P.S. I served mashed cauliflower on the side.

                              Overall, really liked the taste. My picky eater of a husband liked it. Just wished the measurements were consistent. Fresh herbs were in ounces, tsps, and sprigs. Didn't have time to google to convert measurements for solids listed in ounces. Since I didn't have a food processor, I added olive oil and a bit of water to paste ingredients in blender, and it worked well. Used coarser pepper for cooking.

                                Thanks for that idea! I don’t have a food processor either. Will be making this tonight.
